This talk will discuss the relationship between community/public health nursing and population health and explore the foundations of this relationship. The foundation of population health is the understanding that the goal of public health is to reduce the risk of health problems. In the context of community/public health nursing, the goal is to improve the health status of the community. Public health nurses are trained to reduce risk of health problems by promoting health at an individual, community, population, and national level.
In a communitypublic health nursing situation, the risk of health problems is reduced by promoting health at the population level. This includes promoting healthy behaviors such as physical activity, nutrition, and smoking cessation, along with the avoidance of behaviors such as obesity and substance abuse. This is particularly important in a community public health setting because it’s hard to tell what the risk of disease is when you can’t see the problem.
That’s why community public health nursing is more a way to reduce health risk than create it. This means that as a nurse, you can not only reduce the risk of disease, but also help promote health. So if you’re a health educator, you can create a healthy environment by teaching about healthy behaviors.
So if you work in a community public health setting, you are essentially teaching about behaviors. If you work in a community hospital setting, you are effectively teaching about a disease. So its a double edged sword because there is a lot of overlap between the two. And while this may sound like a minor technicality, it’s important to consider that teaching about behaviors and diseases can be very different.
This is a good example of that. I know health care workers who are also medical students. They are very aware of what they are teaching. They are aware of what they are teaching their students, and they are aware that these patients have the potential to become medical patients themselves. So the best way to approach this is to have a plan.
As a first step you should have a plan. And a plan will help you avoid common mistakes that will only make you less effective. So for this plan, let’s say your goal is to reduce the number of new cases of HIV by 50%.
That’s a pretty big number. But what do you do? First, you have to know the epidemiology of HIV at your site. You will have to define the population at risk and the infection rates for each group. Then you have to develop a survey tool to determine the prevalence of HIV in your community. Next you need to determine the incidence of HIV infection. There are three stages to this process: 1. You have to identify the population at risk. 2.
you have to identify the prevalence of HIV in your community. There are three stages to this process 1. You have to identify the population at risk. 2.
1. The first step is to define the size of the population at risk and the prevalence of HIV in your community. The population at risk needs to be defined in terms of the number of people in your community at risk (i.e., the number of people you know are at risk). The prevalence of HIV in the community needs to be defined by the prevalence of HIV in your community multiplied by the number of people at risk.
The prevalence of HIV in a population in terms of the number of people that have HIV in that population needs to be calculated by dividing the number of people that are infected by the total number of people in the population. The prevalence of HIV in a population in terms of the number of people that do not have HIV in that population needs to be calculated by dividing the number of people that are not infected by the total number of people in the population.
